omg, i just looked and saw that due to some warp of the universe, i have never written a testimonial for the force of nature that is lyingbare! must rectify that immediately, so here goes!
in all of my years, and i truly mean this, i cannot think of anyone else who has the open heart, the happy spirit, and the mind-boggling generosity of this woman. we first met here on tribe going on five years ago, when she embraced me, a total stranger, and invited me into her burning man clan.
since then, being able to see bare in person is the kind of thing that makes my heart beat fast, and brings a smile to my face. so real, so loving, so open, loyal, giving, just frickin' over-the-top a compact bundle of light in the world. if bare gives you advice, listen. if she gives you props, feel honored. and if you get to meet her in person, give her a big hug. she especially likes that if you have nice big soft boobs and you're kinda tall ;^)
i truly love you, bare.

Bare is one of those amazing people who has most certainly uniquely touched the lives of many.
She has certainly touched mine. Finding a kindred and grounded spirit from across the country, whose voice has on more than one occasion either echoed my own feelings or helped steady me through uncertainty, has been a blessing.
She in a rare and wonderful woman whose laughter can tickle you silly, voice can calm, and love can be felt from 3000 miles away.

Yes! as Kelly Mentioned.. (Love ya man) My Surgery is complete and I am home resting with medication fairly comfortable, a little sore, still cant seem to eat much but Docs arent worried about that as long as Stay Hydrated.. Jamba Juice and ginger ale (NOT MIXED) are doing the trick.. and we'll try for a small meal tomorrow.

My Pancreas is completely atrophied, BUT it still has a small opening that is allowing it to function.. 1.3mm so its small but it working. as long as it doesnt close up were golden.. the Liver is taking the brunt of the disease, but the best part, there is NO CANCER...
most everyone knows the story of this little organ, and theres LOTS of OLD Blogs about it so I wont bore you with more details.. just wanted ya all to know that surgery went well. a little longer than usual because they now have to do the surgery under General Anesthesia. too many people were waking up under the light sedation and it was taking too much medication to keep them under safely without the anestheologist standing by..
so, I got the versed going in and then NO SHIT..... they gave me Propofol.... OMG!! i was freaked out.... they assured me it was safe when administered properly.. we joked I was not rich and not michale jackson and my doctor best not be calling people while operating on me..
i LOVE my Doctors.. 5 of the best at UCSF, if anyone ever needs a doctor for Liver or Pancreas. go see Dr Ostroff or Dr Mathey... just 2 of the best there are that take good care of me..
surgery was a little over an hour long and recovery another hour.. a day in the hospital and then home to my bed.. where I am treated like a queen by my boys.. How I love them.....
and ALL THE MESSAGES... and phone calls... sorry if I didnt talk to you or slept thru our conversations, I will call ya back this week. or you call me....
now the second part of the surgery is set for january.. and then this one AGAIN in june... its every 6 months.. but were pushin it out a little because I postponed it and threw off the schedule, they werent happy but every year surgery fell right at Playa time and I used to do the surgery and within a week be on the playa... that was getting too hard to do...
so, in closing.. ya all rock, I love ya bunches.. and I am all tuned up and ready to get movin again just need a few days to catch back up to myself...
and for all you gory types and being so close to halloween, how about a picture they took of my Esophogus..... its about the only normal part on me... well theres a few others but thats another story for another thread LOL!!
Truth is.............. I am RARELY HERE, I pop in now and then but if you want to be in touch with me email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me at FB... frankly I hang out there BUT even then I have cut my FB time waaaay back becuse I detest the new format. but to keep in touch with friends I stay.......

I do what YOU ALL to know I havent forgotten you, I DO Love you. and life continues on in the same mammer as its been for a long while..
Playa was the best its ever been, in ALL of my 15 yrs now.. wow, perfect conditions, you virgins have no idea how perfect you had it, DONT GET USED TO IT!!
health wise.. well... 21st of Oct we do another surgery procedure to g back in have a look and make sure that ol pancreas is still pluggin along, still hate it, still makes me anxious, but I KNOW it keeps me goin..
still dont get to see my grandkids because my son hates me and blames me for many things, some he has reason to other things he just doesnt understand, BUT its my grandkids that pay the price and ME, because I cant see them and watch them grow.. it's cruel. but I cant change who he is.. so until he can find it in his little christian heart to forgive me and lets move on things remain the same...
I am still traveling as much as I can as often as I can, and was in Hawaii when the tsunami went thru, glad it wasnt bigger, but it was exciting, Ok sounds strange but it was my first one and the sound of an ANGRY Ocean was intense...
I will be in Scotland, and Around Europe, Paris, Amsterdam, and time allowing perhaps a few more places in June 2012 for the entire month.
its my Family reunion on the Isle of Mull in Scotland. the MACLEAN Clan is about to invade from ALL PARTS of the world.. literally. the Diaspora is being called home... and I cant wait.....
so... in closing. ya wanna visit with me.. email me... or find me at Face Book, I use the screen name Barb Bare there, or find me using my email address, its UP THERE... :)
and KNOW I love you all
